Annual Report 2013


Performance and progress

The Group’s main focus is embedding sustainability in the business strategy, across the organization, and along the value chain.

The Group’s aim is to manage social, ethical and environmental risks responsibly while creating opportunities around new markets, products and materials. The Group’s approach is presented in three pillars:

  • Products, services and markets
  • People and operations
  • Stakeholders and society

This work is supported by policies and targets to make operations and products more eco-efficient, and maintain high social and ethical standards and transparency across the business. Each year Electrolux tracks progress against these and reports to stakeholders.
